Chaa Creek Natural History Center & Butterfly Farm

Nature Center in Southwest of San Ignacio

Hike up the tree-covered hillside above the Macal River to reach the Chaa Creek Natural History Center & Butterfly Farm, a small nature center with displays on Belize’s flora and fauna, as well as the early Maya. The highlight is the butterfly farm, which breeds the dazzlingly iridescent blue morpho (Morpho peleides) for export. Tours are offered from the lodge.
